Stacie Orrico never asked to be a star. Stardom, with all its glittering promises, found her. She was discovered at 12, released a gold-selling debut album at 14, and traveled the globe to support her internationally best-selling follow-up at 17. By the age of 18, Orrico had sold more than 3.4 million albums worldwide.
Orrico not only possesses a dazzling voice, she is also blessed with a rare maturity, which enabled her to walk away from her career three years ago to rediscover who she was and what, and whom, really mattered to her. Orrico's elegant new album, the soulful, R&B-powered "Beautiful Awakening," tells the story of that journey, which has landed her where she is today: in control of her life and career for the first time.
